Escalator outage update 7/3/2015

We will try to keep you informed of escalators that are going to be out of service for more than a week. 

The Richmond escalator that has been out for several weeks and was supposed to be back in service 6/17 will be out until 7/3 (updated). We have been working on a full overhaul and are installing a new gearbox. We apologize for the extended delay and appreciate your patience. There is an elevator available.

The second escalator at Richmond Station has gone out of service. It needs the track realigned which will require taking some sections apart. The new return to service date is 7/15.

We have had to take an escalator out of service at 24th Street Station for a step chain replacement. We expect to return it to service by 7/10.

One of the platform-level escalators at West Dublin has has repeated failures of the step chain. Target completion date for repairs is 7/10.
